Once you have your show set up on Simplecast, you'll need to enter your credit/debit card information to activate your show's RSS feed so you can submit your show's feed URL to Apple and the other podcast directories.
Head to your Account Settings page to enter in your billing information (Simplecast accepts major credit and debit cards).
Once your billing information has been entered, your show's RSS feed will be activated. You can find your show's RSS feed URL in the Sharing page.
Note: If your account is in trial mode, your card won't be charged until your trial period has ended.
Q: Why Do I Need an RSS Feed?
A: Your show's RSS feed is a formatted text document that contains all the information about your show, including show information and episodes. Simplecast handles creating and updating your RSS feed for you, using the info you enter in the Podcast Settings page and when you create new episodes or edit existing ones.
The link to your show's RSS feed (your show's RSS feed URL) is what you'll provide to Apple, Spotify, and the other podcast directories so they can begin checking your RSS feed automatically to get updates and any new episodes you post in Simplecast.

Once billing information has been entered and saved, you'll find your show's RSS feed URL in the Sharing page.
